By Ted Gilbert For those of our rewind-inclined readers unfamiliar with "The Mandela Effect," it is an odd psychological phenomenon that manifests as a shared false memory. A whole bunch of people will all claim to remember some mundane aspect of the world that never was.  A particularly compelling example of the effect has to do with the ubiquitous children's franchise, The Berenstain Bears. That's right -ain, though I'm sure some of you reading this will swear on your life that it was actually The Berenstein Bears. The wilder fringes of conspiratorial thought even posit that The Berenstain Bears come...
